Camp Isidore Alterman
Traditional Camps that are anything but traditional!
- Play in nature!
- Experience new adventures!
- Build self-confidence & independence!
- Make lifelong friendships!
For Rising K–8th Graders
Campers get back to nature as they enjoy endless activities like bumper boats, outdoor cooking, ropes course, canoeing, fishing, sports, free swim, STEAM, drama, dance, arts & crafts, Krav Maga, and more. Please Note: Campers will be grouped by grade level and groups will be co-ed.
For Rising Pre-K
A great introduction to CIA! This program, which is half indoors and half outdoors, is exclusively for rising Pre-K campers who are BOTH potty trained and will be 4 years old by September 1, 2023. In addition to all the fun-filled CIA activities, campers will participate in daily group activities as they make new lifelong friends! Please Note: Campers will need to bring their own lunch that is nut-free; groups are co-ed. We offer this camp in three-week sessions, where your camper will get to know and enjoy the same groupmates and counselors for three consecutive camp weeks.

Unplug for the Summer
Camp Isidore Alterman is the magic of summer and pure joy of time spent outdoors with best friends.
Swim Every Day
Campers have the option to swim every day at MJCCA Day Camps. With two amazing outdoor pools and a water slide, campers can make a splash all summer long!
Celebrate with Friends
Our Boker Tov (good morning) time together each morning is one of many ways our campers meet new friends and spend time with old ones! Every morning, the whole camp joins together for songs, cheers, and fun. Each Friday is filled with ruach (spirit) as campers enjoy an all-camp Shabbat celebration with performances, group songs, skits, and silly competitions. In these special moments, MJCCA Day Camps is filled with campers making lifelong bonds and feeling a true sense of community.
Play like a Pro
For Summer 2023, CIA will offer 12 different sports options, each coached by a professional, elite coaching staff. These specialized coaches will help campers learn and improve their skills in sports including soccer, lacrosse, basketball, flag football, volleyball, and more.
Shop the Shuk
Our Shuk is the highlight of every week at Camp Isidore Alterman. Run by campers in our Chaverim Program for teens with special needs (see page 22 for details), the Shuk allows campers to strengthen their decision- making and social skills as they exchange shekels (coins) for goodies like toys, fresh fruit, granola bars, animal crackers, fruit juices, and more.
For our Chaverim campers who run the Shuk, this experience fosters independence, helps improve communication skills, increases pride, offers responsibility, and gives them the chance to chat with fellow campers. For summer 2023, we’re thrilled to be combining this impactful program with a weekly community service activity, building on our Jewish Values of the week.
